operation s.o.s (support our soldiers)
We are kicking off the 11th annual Operation S.O.S. (Support Our Soldiers) campaign to help make the holidays a little brighter for American troops who are stationed overseas.
During last year’s project, Operation S.O.S. was able to send 503 holiday care packages to soldiers serving in the 25th Signal Battalion who were stationed in Afghanistan.
Would you please consider helping in any of the following ways?
1. Learners can write letters, make cards, or draw pictures for the soldiers to thank them for their service and to help brighten their holiday season while they are away from home.
2. Learners can make holiday ornaments or decorations for the soldiers. (Please do not use glitter. It can make a mess during shipping.)
3. Bring in monetary donations to help pay overseas shipping costs of care packages. (Checks can be made out to: Operation S.O.S., P.O. Box 305, Duncansville, PA 16635)
4. Learners can bring in any of the items listed below for the care packages.
*Our school will be collecting items the entire month of October.
*We CANNOT accept canned goods, items in glass jars or aerosol cans, and items which have expired or will expire by the end of the year.
